Hello Isle of Might!

Well hello y'all! I was toying with which distro to use for music making: Musix, or JackLab, or 64studio. Then I read Dan's interview with Linux Format (the #0 magazine, don't believe everything you read) and realised that DJ lives on 'the island' and I was sold. I'm just up the road in Winchester. So I've chosen the distro for geographic reasons, supporting the local tribe. And I'm a minor fan of Level 42 too. Soon I'll get round to asking my question. Oh, that's now. If I install 64studio on a 32-bit PC that already has Windows 2000 on hda1 and Linux Mint on hda2 (swapfiles on hdb1, hdb2 etc but I'm not worried about these) will the install CD neatly package the option to boot into 64studio in the GRUB where I currently have the Mint and W2k options for booting? Please answer slowly for a 64studio newb... thankyou! btw I tried one install, a lib failed to load off the CD so I've downloaded it again.

Aha! Read The Free Tutorial!

tim's tutorial gives it away. If I can see W2k and Mint listed by the installer then I'll be OK. Hooray! "1807 - end of slave trade; 2007 - end of unfair trade"

Yes, it's true that Level 42 come from the Isle of Wight, but we also have The Bees, highly recommended. Because of the festival, we've also played host to The Doors, Sly and the Family Stone, Miles Davis and many other great musicians. I think Freshwater is the only English village with a statue of Jimi Hendrix :-)
